Research & Innovation
In response to the continuing rise in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks and the significant impact on the province's hospital system, the Ontario government has declared a second provincial emergency which includes a stay-at-home order that went into effect Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 12:01 a.m.
The University, in consultation with the government, has determined that research continues to be considered essential and that individuals are permitted to travel to work when it cannot be performed remotely. We will therefore maintain our campus-based research activities at 50% lab occupant capacity. Our hospital-based research institutes are also able to continue their research activities at a similar reduced capacity.
In the face of a continuously evolving situation, we know we must remain agile and responsive. Please ensure that all relevant information is disseminated to applicable research team members and that the University’s guidance is followed. Faculty members have a responsibility to their staff, trainees, and research participants to stay informed of the current University and research updates:
